Col. Watterson's joy over the elec

Will the Progressive Party live?
This question has been asked us fre

answered that we did not know
But w e do not consider that question
narU- as Imnortant, as. Will the orln

stands live? will tne rule or me

human rights be placed above proper

Theseare the Important questions
and we' can unhesitatingly answer
that these principles will live.
The important thing for the people

Some people seem to think that If a
man was once a Democrat he must al
ways be a Democrat or once a Itepub-1

It would make no difference to these
people if the party did not stand for a
single thing for which it stood when
he joined it, because lie once was a
member of that party he must con
tinue so as long as he lives. This Is
an absurd position. Times are chang
ing, we are confronting new condi
tions and new problems have arisen
which must be solved. Every man
should study these conditions and
these problems and vole for the party,
which he thinks offers the most reason

Some people we fear place party
above principle or country. Let us
stand for principles and not parties.
Don't say a thing Is right simply be-

Excellent Aketings Being Held

The Initial meeting of Home Mis

black man who returned to Africa to
labor for the uplift of his race. When
he graduated In this country from an
Industrial School the president of the
school gave him a square, a saw and
a hatchet and said to him, "whenever
you lind anj thing crooked In your
work, square it up If you find any
thing a misfit, saw It off. If you find
anything good, nail it down." By
following this advice he wrought a
great good among the natives. Miss
Gladys Hogsett sang "Ninety and
Nine," in a most pleasing manner.
Mrs. Rudislll followed with a paper
on the orientals and Asiatics and our
work among the Chinese and Japanese
in the United States. All the papers
showed that careful thought had
been given the subjects and were both
profitable and helpful.
Then an open discussion was held
upon the topics of the afternoon and

The second session of the Home

that the interest was growing and it

After the opening devotional exer

nnP.sslnns to the nresent acaulsltlon
of the Panama Zone also our frontier
lines, was given by Mrs. Joseph fllb
oen who witn tne aiu oicoiureu unarm
told about the vast territory waiting
to be christianized. She quoted from
Dr. Josiah Strong, who said, "He does
most to christianize the w6rld, who
does most to make the United States
thoroughly christian. The wall you
build here will strenghten the wall in
every land. Home missions is no
longer a question of geography but it
is a question of problems, no matter
where they mayte- found, in the ast
or west, the north or south, the city
or the country."
Miss Clay, of"the Episcopal church,
in an able and comprehensive paper
Dresented the work of their church a-
mong the orientals, Chinese, Japanese

J Next was a song by Mrs. Rogers,
followed by Mrs. Annette rnomas on
the islands of Porto Rico and Cuba,
showing that while the United States
does things for these,' islands politi

Miss Amelia Herron, The thought

and are found in 30 states. Some per

visited in these camps were related
and the story of the Sky Pilot re

An apostle among these lumbermen
was Mrs. Hlgglns, whose work was
worthy of exteuded note.
An all mind syposium followed in

Christian church, and Mrs. Watts, of

In his talk at the Boys and Girls
Farm Congress Friday afternoon,
Hon. A. P. Sandles gave excellent
reasons why the people should patron
ize home merchants and not mall
He asked the children if Sears & Roe
buck or Montgomery Ward & Oo1
were furnishing anything towards
giving the Farm Congress and re
ceived the answer no. He told them
that the merchants of Hillsboro were
paying for their entertainment; that
the local 'merchants paid taxes that
helped keep up their schools, build
their roads and assisted in all mat
ters for the upbuilding and improv
ment of the county. The big mall
order houses, he said, had no Interest
in them except to get their money
and assisted them in no way; that
when their monev was paid to these
houses It was gone while if spent with
the local merchants, the local mer
chants might spend it with them.
He emphasized the proposition that
the prosperity of the home merchants
added to their DrosDerlty and that it
was unquestionaoiy to uie auvu.,aKj
of the farmer to buy at home. He
further said that he had no doubt
but that the farmers received better
value for the money spent
home merchants than
with a mail order house,
Tt seems to us that Mr. bandies'
arguments in favor of buying at home
are unanswerable and that his advice
should Joe followed. -
When you are buying of a home
merchant you are not buying a pig in
a poke. You see what you are get

the merchant is right here to make
it right. Further than that he often

Agricultural Extension Work.
Editou of News-Herald :
In a recent issue of this paper men
tion was made of a proposed County
Experiment Farm or of a trained ex
pert to advise with farmers and land
owners, and of the efforts being made
to secure one or both for Highland
The U. S, Department of Agricul
ture, the various xieriment stations
and the colleges of agriculture have
for years been at work investigating,
experimenting and collecting knowl
edge of value to farmers. This inform
mation has been disseminated through
bulletins, the press and students, far
mors institutes and extension schools
are important helps, but there is some
thing more needed and such a need is
being met by demonstration farms,
local experiment farms and by county
or district experts.
Several county experiment farms
have been establish In Ohio and they
are a good thing, but there is needed a
special tax to raise funds for purchas
ing and equipping such a farm and for
running expenses. The inital expense
would be perhaps 810,000, and the run
ning expenses though small mutt
necessarily be greater than the sale of
produce each year.
In Highland county there are two
distinct soil types and a test farm on
one type would be of little value to
those farming on the other kind of
soil; for instance, the soil of the east
ern and nothern parts of the county is
naturally well drained, is mostly clay
loam and is well suited to corn,
clover, orchard grass and blue grass,
while the soil of the western and
southwestern sections is mostly clay
that needs through underdralnage be
fore corn or clover will succeed and is
tetter suited to timothy and red top
for hay. This division is general,
though the characteristic soils of each
section are distinctly different.
The demonstration farms have been
established in several southern states
by the U. S. Department of Agricul
ture to induce the land-owners to get
away from the one crop system, so
ruinous to their land, and to raise
corn, alfalfa, pork and dairy products
Instead of only cotton or tobacco.
These farms .were helpful in study
ing into the habits of and in finding a
remedy for the cotton boll wcavil, the
breeding of animals and plants lm- (
mune to disease and other problems.
However the objec s of demonstra- j
tion and test work are nearly identi-1
cal in Ohio and could all bo attained
without duplication of labor expense, i
One argument against the county test
farm Is that very few people would go
to see the work or to study the results.
The trained expert could go to the
farmer, study his soil and farm con-1
ditlons and be able to offer Helpful
suggestions, supervise soil or crop tests
and to answer the numerous questions
farmers ask each other, or any one
who has some knowledge of the techni
cal side of farming or of the under
lying scientific principles.
After making a careful study of ag
ricultural extension, as it is termed,
and knowing something of what Is
hoped to be accomplished, and the
needs an J wlsftes of the farmers them
selves, the writer wishes to advise
that the county expert be tried first,
then the test farm or even tjie town
ship expert may be secured,! demand
and results justify such a co&rse.
